(Pocket-lint) - Acer is pushing into larger Chromebook territory with the Chromebook 15, sporting a 15.6-inch display. 

Launched at CES 2015, the new Chromebook gives you 27 per cent more space to get productive over the more common 13.3-inch models. The new model will come in different versions for those looking for the best performance or value for money.
